Fancy food for fancy chooks with no added anything, 100% grown, harvested and produced right here in Tuerong.
So much more than golden yolks, our chook pellets are 100% grown, harvested and produced right here on the Peninsula.
Our pellets contain grain and grain by-products, such as bran flour. They are made from a combination of red wheat, white wheat, spelt, oats and other cereals and pulses we grown right here on the Peninsula.
Our pellets are wholly vegetarian – they do not contain restricted animal material. Unlike most other chook pellets, our chook pellets do not contain meat products, fish meal or any stuff that prevents you from safely feeding it to other animals. Our protein content is slightly lower, but we don’t have to wonder where those bits of meat come from.
No Added Bits
Our pellets have had no chemicals, medicines, hormones or growth promoters added. If you are worried your chooks aren’t getting what they need without this stuff, give them some, though we’ve found a varied natural diet is sufficient for good chook health and lovely golden yolks.
No Systemic Sprays
Our pellets have had no chemicals, medicines, hormones or growth promoters added. If you are worried your chooks aren’t getting what they need without this stuff, give them some. Though we’ve found a varied natural diet is sufficient for good chook health and lovely golden yolks. A lot of broadacre grain is grown with ‘spray farming’ techniques. Chemical sprays are used to not only control weeds but to desiccate the crop for a uniform time of harvest in a process known as ‘crop-topping’. This means the plants are sprayed with glyphosate at maturity, just prior to harvest. Our wheat, barley, oats and spelt are not crop-topped. Our farm is not registered organic or biodynamic, but we can show you how we do things to gain your trust.
Ideal for backyard chooks, pullets and chicks
Our food is suitable for chooks that get out once in a while, free-range chooks who are able to forage for insects and other titbits. Pellets with added chemicals and medicines are more suitable to cage birds that get no other dietary inputs. Because our pellets are vegetarian, their protein content is slightly lower, which is a good thing for young chooks – a higher protein diet is not good for them.
First off, make sure they’ve got ready access to food and fresh water. Some shade, somewhere to nest and brood, somewhere else to scratch about and get some grit in their gizzards. And remember to keep them locked up at night and fantastically fox-free.
For optimal shelf life, store the pellets off the ground in a dry place and away from direct sunlight. Use within six months of purchase. In case you were wondering, our pellets are not for human consumption.
